Looks like an amaryllis, if it is, the pot is to big for the plant, leave approx 1-1 1/2 inches between bulb and pot sides. Additionally the top1/4 to 1/3 of the bulb should be showing.

Uhhh I'd planned on putting him into a larger pot. Would you say he should be repotted in to a smaller pot maybe ??

It could also be a Clivia miniata.

I repotted this plant and my mother in law has him in living room for now but I told her the best idea for him is in the basement. Which is where I live so works out ok. he is sitting deep inside a larger pot mostly hidden from any light now . I did put him in a smaller pot with no fertilizer.
